Lover's Point

It's a fun beach park with a great jogging/biking trail to Cannery Row. You can rent bikes there, picnic, bbq, hang out on the sand, watch lots of ocean life and relax.

Unexpectedly beautiful, rocky coastline. Lots of rocks to climb on and get fabulous views and photos.

We were here on a beautiful sunny day in March, but the wind made it chilly. This community park is located at Ocean View Blvd. and 17th Street and is used for picnicking, fishing, swimming, and water sports. Lover's Point has a large lawn area, beach volleyball, a children's swimming pool, sandy beaches, rocky areas with ground squirrels, a concrete... More

Beautiful area. Saw a Harbor Seal playing. Saw a dead sea lion here and 3 at Asilomar. I guess they are starving because global warming is making the water too warm for the fish the sea lions eat so they swim elsewhere and the sea lions are starving. Lover's Point is a great place to bring the family or just... More

Wonderful grassy park that has amazing views of the Monterey Bay. Also has a beautiful, soft white sand beach that is family-friendly. Plenty of tide pools to explore too.

One of my go-to favorite places to go. I've been coming to spot every since I was a child and still brings great joy for me to visit this place. A couple of years ago, they removed the public restrooms and with the amount of people that visit this location, I'm a little surprised that they haven't rebuild another facility.... More

Lovers Point Park is another Pacific Grove destination. A path around the outside provides a vantage point to see seals, dolphins and even the occasional whale spout- all in the proper season. The winter storms can come in and roll the big rocks in the surf- ocean thunder! There's some tidepooling, just be sure not to collect anything as its... More

this is right on the Monterey Bay, with easy access to Lover's Point Cove - safe for playing in the water, as well as just viewing the Bay. It is a local's favorite.
